Harsh pain sears through, heavy hurt, ringing ears,
The silent drip drop of invisible tears,
Clenched teeth, just bear it, you'll pull through.
Love? You're not sure. Devotion? Maybe.
Loyalty? Certainly. Pride? Absolutely.
Shame, it clings like cobwebs to your soul,
Sinful, ugly shame, that's why lips stay sealed.
Satin red blood, bruises on the uneaten apple,
Clumsy? Yes, ridiculously so. Accidents? All the time.
